Before taking this class, I had not done much painting of animals prior, and my main struggle was getting motivated to get paint. I took this class to inspire myself to return to watercolor painting.
This class had easy to follow lessons and demos, a reference photo library, and interaction with community of like minded people. I liked how everyone is at a different level of experience and has a different style, and I learned to be a bit looser and to trust my own process.

I took this class to learn how to draw and paint animals, because I love them. I hesitated about signing up because of my drawing abilities and my watercolor abilities; however, no online or video course has ever been as fun, encouraging, easy to follow, or has the instructor painted the entire picture right there with you, and you did just that. You made the creative process go full circle.
I loved the support from you and the other students. The class videos were very well done with easy to follow drawing and painting instructions and demonstrations. Plus, it was so much fun!!

I heard about your class because I stumbled onto your page and I’m so thankful for that. I hesitated to take this class because I was not sure if I could keep up or even like watercolors. I wanted to take your class because I like animals but FARM animals are my favorite. The class is perfect, Miriam. I wouldn't change a thing. I learned SO MUCH! Color mixing, sketching, marketing art. It was chock full of information, and I could go at my own pace.

I had never tried painting animals before, but I loved the samples of art provided, the name of the course and the feeling that I could do it. Miriam's classes are exactly what I've been looking for, very timely and well designed.
Her style, support and social media groups work very well for my learning style. I liked learning new techniques, particularly doing shading in the first layer and confidence building. I learned that with the right instruction and support that I could do it.
